Series: Double Blind Study
Book: The Hope That Starts
Author: Heidi Hutchinson
If there's one thing Zelda Fitzpatrick is good at, it's fandom. She can out-geek the geekiest. Her devotion knows no bounds. Her love is true, her motives pure. Oh, and she's also a talented freelance photographer, newly hired to go on the road with one of her favorite bands, Double Blind Study. All she has to do is not ruin this opportunity with her nerdy references (which are in abundance) or her devout klutziness. And she probably shouldn't fall madly in love with lead guitarist, Harrison O'Neil... who is taken. Unfortunately.
I received an ARC in exchange for an honest review.
As a blogger you come across a lot of different kinds of books. Many different genres, many different writing styles. You get asked to review great books, and then you get asked to review the mediocre to the sometimes sadly not too great at all books.
Probably one of the best series I have ever been asked to review, this installment of the Double Blind Study series is another Medal of Honor to the series. Fantastically written, my favorite characters all join together yet again as we follow the story of Harrison. He's one of my favorite characters and I fell in love with him more and more as the story progressed. I fan girled at references throughout the entire book. With a twist that completely knocked me on my behind (like I walked into a wall while I was reading it and I fell on my behind), I was hooked in from beginning to end. I think I have already found my favorite read of 2015, I know it just started but sometimes you just know.
“Harrison is about to expire from hunger. How are you feeling?”
“Don't ever be ashamed of who you are. Be exactly who you are. Be unapologetically you. No, not everyone is going to celebrate that with you. Some people will try to hurt you and tear you down, that can't be helped. In fact, that'll happen no matter what. So you might as well be exactly who you're supposed to be, and forget the ugly things people say.”
“I haven't seen a lot of groupies on the tour. What's that all about?” “I think Kendra Tasers them on sight—”
“I thought that love was just something we made up to scare away the dark.”
“I think that if the world were to run out of sugar, Zelda would be the first to die.”
“I can't see the stars when I'm in the city, never could. But I know they're there. They're always there. They shine and burn and fall... just like us.”
